Better band?!?

I own every Van Hagar CD as well, but how can you say they were a better band than Van Halen? What makes the MUSIC on a Van Halen/Van Hagar album?

Eddie, obviously.

When did Eddie play his best?

When David Lee Roth was kicking his ass! The 2 of them drove each other to greatness, and Mikey and Alex followed. They did that for 6 classic albums, and they did it again in 1996. And they're doing it again right now!

Sammy's a great singer and (sometimes) songwriter as well, but he let Eddie get lazy and put out too many ballads. Now I know this board is full of people who like the ballad stuff, and Van Hagar's were certainly better than those of the typical hair band. But for the "artists formerly known as Van Halen", it was a big step down.

As for the "chubby bald" shit, give me a break. Sammy's a lot chubbier than Dave. And so Dave's lost some hair. How many 45 year old men haven't?

In either case I'd be happy to have the energy that both of them have when I get to 45 and 53.
